Build your own R1M

PAR Cycle CanadaPosted on

Didn’t get the R1M you asked for this holiday season? Don’t fret because Yamaha has you covered. Sort of.

The Japanese manufacturer recently released downloadable instructions for how to build your own R1M – but instead of titanium and magnesium, this build-it-yourself bike is made from plain old printer paper.

The “ultra realistic” model has 914 parts, takes 54 pages of printer paper to create, and the end product is approximately 41 cm long. If you have enough ink and paper – and time to kill – click here to check it out.
